General Information 


Catholic Theological Union was founded in 1967 as 
a creative response to the call sounded by Vatican II for 
a renewed theological education for priesthood. Three 
religious orders originally sponsored the school: the Fran- 
ciscans of Sacred Heart Province, the Servites of the 
Eastern U. S. Province and the Passionists of Holy Cross 
Province. The school was incorporated pursuant to the 
laws of the State of Illinois in November 1967. Classes 
began in the fall quarter of 1968, with a faculty of 24 and 
an enrollment of 108. In January 1972, Catholic 
Theological Union was accredited by the American 
Association of Theological Schools. The North Central 
Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools granted 
accreditation in March 1972. 

Since its founding, other religious communities have 
designated Catholic Theological Union as their official 
theologate: the Augustinians (1968), the Norbertines 
(1968), the Cincinnati Province and Kansas City Province 
of the Society of the Precious Blood (1968), the Mis- 
sionaries of the Sacred Heart (1969), the Society of the 
Divine Word (1970), the Eastern Province of the Con- 
gregation of the Holy Ghost (1971), the Claretians (1972), 
the Viatorians (1972), the Xaverian Missionaries (1973), 
the Crosiers (1974), the Comboni Missionaries of the 
Heart of Jesus (1976), the Pontifical Institute for Foreign 
Missions (1976), the St. Nicholas Diocese in Chicago for 
Ukrainian Catholics (1978), the Priests of the Sacred 
Heart (1979), the Assumption Province of the Franciscans 
(1980), the Congregation of the Blessed Sacrament (1980), 
the St. Paul of the Cross Province of the Passionists (1981), 
the Capuchins (1982), the St. John the Baptist Province 
of the Franciscans (1982), the Society of St. Columban 
(1984), the Redemptorist Fathers and Brothers (1984), the 
Central United States Province of the Missionary Oblates 
of Mary Immaculate (1985), the Western Province of the 
Congregation of the Holy Ghost (1985), the Oratorians 
(1987), the Maryknoll Missionaries (1988), the St. John 
the Baptist Province of the Missionary Oblates of Mary 
Immaculate (1988), and the St. Bonaventure Province of 
the Franciscan Conventuals (1988). 


















Catholic Theological Union is unique among schools 
of theology and seminaries. It is not a coalition of in- 
dependent schools. Rather, the participating orders closed 
their individual theologates and merged their resources 
into one school, with one administration and facuUy. 
Control is vested in the Board of Trustees. The school has 
the advantage of unity of administration and breadth of 
tradition and support and has been accepted by its peers 
in the world of theological education. 

Catholic Theological Union is the largest Roman 
Catholic school of theology in the United States, serving 
32 provinces and abbeys of religious men as an official 
theologate. It also serves other students, lay and reUgious, 
in the preparation for ministry. One out of every eight 
religious priesthood candidates in the United States is 
trained at Catholic Theological Union. 

A living sense of purpose guides a school more effec- 
tively than any written statement. From the very begin- 
ning, it was understood that Catholic Theological Union 
would be a school of ministry. Theology would be directed 
to practice. The by-laws concisely stated this objective: 
to train and teach aspirants to the Roman Catholic 
priesthood so that they may be fully qualified to meet the 
requirements of such priesthood. 

As a school grows, a periodic review of its purposes 
is necessary. In 1991, Catholic Theological Union reviewed 
its goals and adopted a new Identity and Mission Statement: 


Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of theology and 
ministry sponsored by Roman Catholic religious institutes and societies 
of apostolic life. In response to the renewal of the Second Vatican Coun- 
cil, the school's founders chose to unite their seminaries in order to 
educate more creatively for the religious priesthood and to locate the 
school near other graduate schools of theology and the University of 
Chicago in order that students and faculty may benefit from and con- 
tribute to theological scholarship and ministerial formation in an ur- 
ban, ecumenical and university setting. Reflecting the diverse cultures, 
nationalities and races of the women and men who make up the CTU 
community, the school sees the pursuit of justice, inclusivity and col- 
laboration as integral to its ethos. 


The primary mission of Catholic Theological Union is the academic 
and pastoral formation of students preparing for the priesthood and 
for a variety of other ministries in the United States and around the 
world. The school also provides continuing theological education for 

clergy, religious and lay persons. CTU is committed to theological educa- 
tion and scholarship within a community of faith in interaction with 
a living Cathohc tradition and ecumenical, interfaith and cross-cultural 
perspectives and resources. Through its degree programs and other educa- 
tional and formational opportunities CTU strives to educate effective 
leaders for the church whose mission is to witness Christ's good news 
of justice, love and peace to people of all nations. 

The central focus of Catholic Theological Union is 
the priesthood candidate. In the spirit of the Program of 
Priestly Formation, the school has adapted its programs 
to the present needs of church and society. Today, such 
adaptation involves an additional commitment to educa- 
tion for the wide variety of ministries emerging in the 
church, for women and men, religious and lay, as well as 
continuing education for those already involved in 
ministry, both ordained and non-ordained. Half of 
Catholic Theological Union's current students are among 
those preparing for such ministries or are in programs of 
continuing education for their current ministries. 


Catholic Theological Union is located in Hyde Park 
on Chicago's south side. This is a cosmopolitan, stably 
integrated community, with a strong sense of identity. 
Within walking distance are shopping centers, theaters, 
restaurants, churches, parks, the Lake Michigan beaches 
and the Museum of Science and Industry. Downtown 
Chicago is fifteen minutes away by car or rapid transit. 
More importantly. Catholic Theological Union is close 
to the Divinity School of the University of Chicago and 
to several schools of theology in the area: Chicago 
Theological Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology at 
Chicago, Meadville/Lombard Theological School and 
McCormick Theological Seminary. 


Catholic Theological Union occupies three buildings 
on Cornell Avenue. Five floors of the ten-story building 
at 5401 South Cornell Avenue provide space for 
classrooms, administrative and faculty offices, library, 
dining and lounge facihties, meeting rooms and audio- 
visual laboratory. Additional faculty office and classroom 
facilities are located in the building at 5326 South Cornell. 

Living quarters for some of the religious communities 
of men occupy five floors of the building at 5401 South 





Cornell Avenue. Living quarters for other students are 
located in the 5326 and 5420 buildings. Both efficiency 
and one-bedroom apartments are available. 


The Catholic Theological Union Library contains 
90,000 volumes, providing resources for study and 
research by students and faculty members. It currently 
receives over 540 periodicals. In addition to the general 
theological holdings, the library has special collections in 
mission studies, history of religions and homiletics. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools' 
libraries, one of the largest theological bibhographical 
resources in the Western hemisphere, consisting of more 


than 1,200,000 volumes in theology and allied fields, are 
available to students enrolled in CTU. A courier service 
circulates books and periodicals for inter-library loans. 

Membership in the Association of Chicago 
Theological Schools, the Chicago Library System, the Il- 
linois Library Computer System Organization and the On- 
line Catalog Library Cooperative allows library patrons 
access to other library resources in the city of Chicago, 
the state of Illinois, and the rest of the nation. 


From its earliest days, Chicago has been a major 
cosmopoHtan center, with its many neighborhoods 
representing a wide variety of racial and ethnic groups, 
as well as a broad spectrum of cultural and religious 

In recent years, Chicago has also become one of the 
largest centers of theological education in the world. Its 
12 seminaries with over 4000 students and 400 faculty 
make Chicago an unequalled resource for the study of 
theology and ministry. 

Catholic Theological Union enjoys a variety of col- 
laborative relationships with the other theological institu- 
tions of the city, through two distinctive interlocking 

The school works closely with four other institutions 
in Hyde Park, who together form the Hyde Park Cluster 
of Theological Schools. The other institutions are the 
Chicago Theological Seminary (United Church of Christ), 
Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago, Meadville/Lom- 
bard Theological School (Unitarian/Universalist Associa- 
tion) and McCormick Theological Seminary (Presbyterian 
Church, USA). The Hyde Park Cluster works to develop 
coordinated and joint programming as well as other 
academic services to students and faculty. 

The Association of Chicago Theological Schools 
represents another form of collaboration. Its membership 
includes the five Hyde Park schools plus Bethany Theo- 
logical Seminary (Church of the Brethren) and Northern 
Baptist Theological Seminary, both located in the western 
suburbs, and five northside schools, Garrett-Evangelical 
Theological Seminary (United Methodist), North Park 
Theological Seminary (Evangelical Covenant), Saint Mary 
of the Lake University (Roman Catholic), Seabury- 
Western Theological Seminary (Episcopal) and Trinity 
Evangelical Divinity School (Evangelical Free Church). 
The Association fosters student cross-registration, coor- 
dination of library access and acquisition, faculty discus- 
sion and communication among the schools. It offers to 






the 4000 students in its 12 schools more than 1000 courses 
annually and library collections in excess of 1.2 million 
volumes, with nearly 5000 currently received periodical 
subscriptions. Further information on the Association 
may be found in the current edition of its Announcements. 

The participating institutions in each of these groups 
maintain educational autonomy and grant their own 
degrees. Each school also preserves its confessional iden- 
tity and theological traditions. Catholic Theological 
Union's participation follows the guidelines set down in 
the Ecumenical Directory of the Secretariat for Promoting 
Christian Unity and in the Program of Priestly Forma- 
tion of the National Conference of Cathohc Bishops. 

Students may enroll in courses in any of these 12 
schools without additional tuition or registration charge 
upon approval of their academic advisors and the 
Registrar. They enjoy library privileges in these schools 
at no charge. 









Catholic Theological Union is located near the cam- 
pus of the University of Chicago, one of the great research 
institutions in the world. Its Divinity School is renowned 
for historical research and the preparation of teaching 

A special plan of biregistration permits CTU students 
to register for courses in the University at a substantial 
reduction of tuition. 

By special arrangement, certain M.Div. students may 
pursue a coordinated sequence of study whereby they may 
receive the M.Div. degree from Catholic Theological 
Union and the Ph.D. degree thereafter from the Univer- 
sity of Chicago's Divinity School. Details on this arrange- 
ment may be found in the M.Div./Ph.D. section of the 


In 1968 the Jewish Chautauqua Society established a 
resident lectureship in Judaism at Catholic Theological 
Union for the purpose of providing offerings in Jewish 
studies in the curriculum. Hayim Goren Perelmuter, Rabbi 


Emeritus of Congregation K.A.M. Isaiah Israel and past 
President of the Chicago Board of Rabbis, has served as 
Chautauqua Professor of Jewish Studies at CathoHc 
Theological Union under this endowment since 1968. 

The Northern Province of the Society of the Divine 
Word established the Divine Word Scholar-in-Residence 
in 1976 to bring instructors from other countries to teach 
at Catholic Theological Union. These lecturers offer 
courses for one or more quarters during the academic 
year. Other participating communities at Catholic 
Theological Union have periodically supported visiting 
lectureships to enrich the offerings in the school's

STAUROS, U.S.A. is an ecumenical, not-for-profit 
organization which promotes studies and programs on 
specific areas of human suffering from a religious point 
of view. Stauros, U.S.A. has been located at Catholic 
Theological Union since 1981. Its activities include 
publication of the bi-monthly Stauros Notebook which 
presents articles and resource material on suffering drawn 
from Scripture, theology, other disciplines and personal 
histories. It also conducts programs on suffering, on 
behalf of the suffering and on the mystery of Redemp- 
tion. A strong focus of Stauros, U.S.A. is advocacy on 
behalf of and with persons who are disabled. 

The parent organization, Stauros International, was 
founded in Belgium in 1972. The international secretariat 
continues to be located in Belgium. It produces a special- 
ized bibliography on publications (English, French, Ger- 
man, Spanish and Italian) on suffering and issues scholar- 
ly bulletins. Harry Gielen, C.P. , is the Director of the 
international secretariat. Ardis Cloutier, O.S.F. , the Ex- 
ecutive Director of STAUROS, U. S . A . , is a 1990 M .T. S . 
graduate of Catholic Theological Union. 











Fees and Financial Aid 

All tuition and fees are subject to annual review and 
change. Current rates for tuition and other fees can be 
found in the Announcements insert. 


Payment of tuition and fees is due within the first thir- 
ty days of each quarter. Housing is billed monthly. Late

ing bills will be permitted to register for the following 
quarter on a conditional basis only; unpaid balances may 
not be carried past the following quarter or into the next

The cost of education at Catholic Theological Union 
may exceed the financial resources of some students. The 
school offers financial aid derived from limited scholar- 
ship funds to offset some of these costs. This aid is 
available to students who are undertaking degree programs 
and is given in the form of tuition remission grants. The 
school also assists students in applying for federal loans 
for graduate level study. In addition, there are oppor- 
tunities for student employment. 


All financial aid is awarded in quarterly increments 
for a period of one year or less. Awards are renewable 
based on applications submitted annually in the spring 
of the year. Students must complete a financial aid ap- 
pHcation by the following dates: 

Returning Students — March 15 
Matriculating Students — 60 days prior to the begin- 
ning of the quarter 


In addition to the general scholarship fund, there are 
a number of specialized funds and programs: 

Through the International Women Scholarship Fund 
CTU offers a limited number of one-year scholarships 




(up to $10,000) to International Women seeking to study 
for Roman Catholic Ministry in their own country. 

The McCauley Scholarship Fund is intended for the 
support of women students of ministry at CTU. 

The Augustus Tolton Scholarship Fund is for the sup- 
port of African American students preparing for ministry 
in the Archdiocese of Chicago. 

The Carroll Stuhlmueller Scholarship Fund con- 
tributes to the support of students in the area of scrip- 
ture and spirituality. First priority is given to international 

CTU also participates in a "partnership" grant pro- 
gram for students who are engaged in ministry at the same 
time they are pursuing full or part-time studies. Interested 
students should consult the Dean of Students. 


Student Life 

The Dean of Students and Community Services 
is the administration's representative for matters of stu- 
dent hfe at Cathohc Theological Union. The Dean of 
Students and Community Services works with the Stu- 
dent Executive Committee and the Formation Council and 
serves as liaison between these bodies and the administra- 
tion. The Dean facilitates networking among the various 
communities and individuals who comprise the Catholic 
Theological Union. The participating communities of the 
Union provide for the spiritual formation of their 
members; the Dean of Students provides opportunities 
and assistance to other students not sponsored by the par- 
ticipating communities ("independent students") in their 
integration of study, ministry and personal growth. 

The Student Services Office offers a broad range of 
assistance to CTU students and personnel. These services 
include information on spiritual direction and counsel- 
ing resources, CTU scholarship programs and Stafford 
Loans, ministry placement, health insurance and immigra- 
tion forms. Student Services handles housing for indepen- 
dent students and other CTU residents. The office is a 













clearing house for scheduling and publicizing school 
events. The office serves as liaison with the University of 
Chicago Health Service and recreational facilities. 

These services and other opportunities are detailed in 
the Catholic Theological Union Student Handbook, 
available from the Dean of Students and Community 




The basic organ of student opinion and action at 
Catholic Theological Union is the Student Executive 
Committee. The SEC coordinates various areas of stu- 
dent responsibility and participation in Catholic 
Theological Union life. Through its representatives on the 
CTU Senate, on the Student Affairs Committee of the 
Board of Trustees, and on principal committees, the SEC 
communicates student viewpoints on issues of school 
policy and direction. Representatives of the participating 
communities and of the independent students compose 
the SEC; additionally, those students appointed to the 
various school committees serve on this body. A presi- 
dent and vice-president elected by the entire student body 
head the SEC. The Student Executive Committee 
represents the students in matters dealing with the facul- 
ty and administration, as well as student concerns in the 
other schools of the Association of Chicago Theological 
Schools. The SEC works closely with the Dean of 
Students and Community Services. 


The directors of formation of all the participating 
communities at Catholic Theological Union and the Dean 
of Students compose the Formation Council. The Coun- 
cil serves as a forum through which the directors share 
insights and experiences regarding spiritual formation. In 
certain instances the Formation Council may agree upon 
common policies in matters which affect the religious well- 
being of the student body, and in particular of the 
students from the participating religious communities, and 
make recommendations to the administration. Formation 
directors engage in the academic life of the school by at- 
tending faculty meetings, serving on school committees 
and, in particular cases, by holding joint appointments 
as CTU faculty and community formation staff. 


The Formation Council also places two representatives on 
the Catholic Theological Union Senate. 


In the matter of academic guidance, each student, 
upon being admitted to the school, is assigned an 
academic advisor. 

The participating communities of Catholic Theolog- 
ical Union generally provide resources in the area of 
counseling and spiritual direction for their student 
members. For independent students, referral for counsel- 
ing and spiritual direction is available through the office 
of the Dean of Students and Community Services. 

Each of the participating communities celebrates daily 
liturgies in which all students are welcome. Additionally, 
Catholic Theological Union, through its Liturgy Com- 
mittee, sponsors all-school liturgies several times per 
quarter. These celebrations are important features of the 
school's life as a faith community. 


Participating communities of the Catholic Theological 
Union generally provide housing for their own students. 
Housing for independent students is available at 5326 and 
5420 South Cornell. Students desiring to lease the effi- 
ciency or one-bedroom units in these buildings should 
make application through the Dean of Students and Com- 
munity Services. Housing requests should be made as 
soon as possible after admission to the school and not 
later than 30 days prior to the beginning of the quarter. 
If Catholic Theological Union housing is unavailable, the 
Dean of Students and Community Services will assist 
students searching for other suitable accommodations. 

Several of the religious communities of men have their 
residence in the 5401 South Cornell building. Private 
rooms with baths are available in the 5401 building to other 
male students as well. A residents' lounge is available for 
independent students in the 5401 and 5326 buildings. In- 
quiries as to availability of rooms in the 5401 building should 
be directed to the Dean of Students and should be received 
at least 30 days prior to the beginning of a quarter. 









Catholic Theological Union has a cafeteria-style food 
service which is open to all school personnel. Meals may 
be purchased on a quarterly contract or a meal-ticket plan. 
Residents in 5401 are required to be on the food service. 

Housing and food service prices are subject to periodic 
review and change. Current charges may be ascertained 
through inquiry to the Dean of Students. 


Recreational facilities are available nearby as well as 
throughout the city. At a short distance from the school, 
the majestic Lake Michigan shoreline provides an apt set- 
ting for meditation, walking, jogging and cycling. Beaches 
and parks for studying, sunning, picnicking and general 
enjoyment are all within a few blocks. Golf is available 
in nearby Jackson Park; tennis courts can be found at 
Jackson Park as well as close-at-hand Cornell Park. In- 
door facilities in the area offer opportunities for swim- 
ming, racquetball, tennis and fitness exercise. On payment 
of an annual fee. Catholic Theological Union students 
are eligible to use the University of Chicago's extensive 
athletic facilities. 


General Regulations 


Catholic Theological Union, as a school for ministry 
in the Roman Catholic tradition, aims at providing quality 
education for persons interested in ministry. Consequent- 
ly, all its programs are open to all serious and qualified 
students, male and female, who wish to prepare 
themselves for ministries in this tradition. 

Pre-Theological Study 

Pre-theological studies have been the object of exten- 
sive research and consultation in recent years. Both the 
Program of Priestly Formation and the Association of 
Theological Schools give guidelines about the understand- 
ings and skills prerequisite to theological education. 
Catholic Theological Union concurs with these statements 
and has adapted its admission requirements and regula- 
tions to their spirit. 






General Admission Requirements 

The following are requisite for general admission to 
Catholic Theological Union: 

— A bachelor's degree or its equivalent from an ap- 
proved college or university. 

— A completed application form. 

The application form may be obtained from the 
Admissions Office. Applications from students 
of participating communities are due April 15. 
Applications from all other students are due six 
weeks prior to the quarter in which students plan 
to enter Catholic Theological Union. Late ap- 
plications will be accepted, but no guarantee can 
be given of admission processing in time to begin 
the following quarter. In such cases, students may 
be admitted conditionally at the discretion of the 
Admissions Committee. 

— Payment of the matriculation fee to the Admissions 

— Submission of official copies of all college transcripts 
to the Admissions Office. 

— Letters of Recommendation. 

In applying for a degree or for studies leading to a 
certificate, three letters are required. 

In the case of priests and deacons or members 
of religious institutes which are not participating 
communities of Catholic Theological Union, one 
of these letters must be from an official represent- 
ative of their diocese or institute. 

Applicants from Catholic Theological Union's 
participating communities need not submit let- 
ters, since permission from a participating com- 
munity constitutes adequate recommendation. If 
the community withdraws its sponsorship or if 
the student leaves the community. Catholic 
Theological Union requires the presentation of 
three letters of reference and a new application 
requesting re-admission. 

In applying for continuing education or special stu- 
dent status, one letter is required. 

This letter must come from a person who can 



testify to the applicant's ability to undertake 
graduate study in ministerial education. 

Again, applicants from Catholic Theological 
Union's participating communities need not sub- 
mit this letter. 

Catholic Theological Union reserves the right to re- 
quire personal interviews with admissions officials and 
formal evaluation of applicants. 


Student Classification 

Students are admitted to studies toward degree pro- 
grams after completion of admission requirements of the 
respective programs. They may apply for degree candidacy 
after completion of more than 25*^0 but less than 33% 
of study toward the respective degree. Specific re- 
quirements for degree candidacy in the various degree pro- 
grams are listed in the respective program manuals. 

Generally, persons already engaged in ministry who 
are seeking further professionalization and updating but 
are not choosing another degree program enroll in the 
continuing education program. 

Special student status is normally reserved to those 
who have not yet decided on a degree program or who 
are enrolling for a specific and closely defined objective 
such as courses for initial formation purposes or cross- 
cultural mission preparation. Renewal of special student 
status beyond one year is contingent upon the recommen- 
dation of instructors at CathoHc Theological Union and 
review by the Admission Committee. 

Students enrolling for at least nine hours per quarter 
are classified as full-time students. All others are part- 
time students. 


Registration takes place in advance of the quarter on 
the dates announced in the academic calendar. Late 
registration is allowed on the dates so designated in the calen- 
dar. Registration after these dates cannot be guaranteed. 




Changes in Registration 

Changes in registration are allowed through the first 
week of the quarter without academic or financial penalty. 
After the first week, refund policies for withdrawals apply. 
(See "REFUND POLICY," p. 12) 

Class Schedule and Course Load 

Catholic Theological Union operates on the quarter 
system, with three eleven-week quarters per year. Most 
courses are offered for 3 quarter credit hours, and meet 
150 minutes per week for 10 weeks, with the eleventh week 
for study and examinations. Classes are scheduled Mon- 
day through Thursday during the day. Evening courses 
and some weekend intensives are also offered. 

The normal course load is 4 courses (12 credit hours) 
per quarter. With the permission of their academic ad- 
visor, students may register for an additional course. 

Course offerings are arranged so that one may pur- 
sue an M .T. S . or M . A . degree in most areas of concen- 
tration completely by means of evening and weekend 
courses. The sequence of these courses is scheduled on 
a two-year cycle. 


Grading and Standards of Progress 

Grades are given at the end of each quarter and 
published by the Registrar. The student's academic ad- 
visor keeps a progressive checklist of advancement toward 
completion of hour and area requirements. 

Catholic Theological Union uses the letter grade 
system and also the pass-fail system for some courses. 
Grades are given and computed according to the follow- 
ing schedule: 



four quality points 



three quality points 



two quality points 



one quality point 



no quality points 


: Pass 

WP = 

Withdrew passing 

WF = 

Withdrew failing 




Permanent Incomj 



Students must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative quali- 
ty point average in a degree program in order to graduate. 
Students falling below this cumulative average for two 
consecutive quarters are subject to probation. Students 
failing to show improvement are subject to dismissal 
unless there are extenuating circumstances. 

Catholic Theological Union reserves the right to 
dismiss students whose academic progress or whose 
adjustment to the school is unsatisfactory. Students 
dismissed for poor scholarship cannot be readmitted to 
the degree program. 


Students may withdraw from any course up to the end 
of the seventh week of the quarter if permission of their 
advisor is obtained. They must follow the procedures 
outUned by the Registrar's Office. The grade "WP" or 
"WF" will be entered on their transcript for courses from 
which they have withdrawn. Refund policies outlined by 
the Business Office will be applied (see p. 12). 


Students who fail to finish work by a quarter's end 
may petition an instructor for an extension of time to 
complete coursework up to the end of the next quarter. 
If work is not completed by that time, the instructor will 
award either an "F" or a "PI" for the course. In those 
instances, no credit will be given for the course. The course 
may be repeated but the student must register and pay 
tuition again according to the normal procedures of the 

Petitions for extensions and copies of the policy and 
procedures on Incompletes are available in the Registrar's 



No credit is given for a course in which a student 
receives an "¥." If the course if required, it must be suc- 
cessfully completed before the student takes courses for 
which it is a prerequisite or before graduation. 

Transfer of Credit 

Previously earned graduate credit in theology may be 
transferred to Catholic Theological Union. Ordinarily, no 
more than 9 hours may be transferred into M.A. and 
M.T. S. programs; no more than 36 quarter credits may 
be transferred into the M . Div. program. No credits from 




courses graded below "B" can be transferred. Decisions 
about credit transfers are made by the degree program 
directors. Credits will be recognized only after the stu- 
dent has successfully completed one year of academic 
work at Catholic Theological Union. 

Advanced Standing 

Students entering M . Div. and M .T. S . programs may 
petition to receive advanced standing for previous work 
done in foundational areas. If the petition is granted, 
hours in those foundational areas then become elective. 
Petitions for advanced standing are to be directed to the 
program director who approves and forwards them to the 
Office of the Academic Dean. 

Credit by Examination 

Credit by examination may be sought in many foun- 
dational areas and in select advanced areas in the M . Div. 
and M.T. S. programs. Procedures for seeking credit by 
examination are outlined in the M.T.S. and M.Div. 

Credit by Cross-Registration 

Students enrolled at Catholic Theological Union en- 
joy the possibihty of enrolling in a number of other 
Chicago theological schools. They may enroll (at no ad- 
ditional tuition charge) at any of the other eleven member 
schools of the Association of Chicago Theological 
Schools (Bethany Theological Seminary, Chicago 
Theological Seminary, Garrett-Evangelical Theological 
Seminary, Lutheran School of Theology, McCormick 
Theological Seminary, Meadville/ Lombard Theological 
School, North Park Theological Seminary, Northern Bap- 
tist Theological Seminary, St. Mary of the Lake Univer- 
sity, Seabury-Western Theological Seminary, and Trinity 
Evangelical Divinity School). 

Catholic Theological Union enjoys a relationship 
whereby its students may also enroll in courses at the 
University of Chicago with significant reduction in tui- 
tion. Details may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. 


Credit for courses taken in the schools mentioned 
above may be appUed toward Catholic Theological Union 
degree requirements. Up to one-third of a student's work 
may be done in these schools, and by special arrangement 
this may be increased to one-half. 























Academic Programs 

The Catholic Theological Union Curriculum 

Catholic Theological Union is a graduate school of 
theology and ministry. Program options in its curriculum 
include the following: Master of Divinity, Master of Arts 
in Theology, Master of Theological Studies, Certificate 
in Biblical Spirituality, Certificate in Liturgical Studies 
and Certificate in Pastoral Studies. 

The school's central mission is the academic and 
pastoral formation of students preparing for the 
priesthood and for a variety of other ministries in the 
United States and around the world. In keeping with that 
mission, the fundamental goal of the curriculum is to pro- 
vide both theological learning and professional develop- 
ment in ministry and to invite students into an educational 
process which promotes dialogue and integration between 
theology and the practice of ministry. 

The educational process also aims to be responsive to 
the larger cultural and religious pluralism of the world 
reflected in the school's international student body, in the 
ecumenical association of theological schools and the ur- 
ban context within which the school carries on its study 
of theology and ministry. Accordingly, in its curriculum 
and common Hfe, the school seeks to foster cross-cultural 
awareness and sensitivity, ecumenical and inter-faith 
dialogue and concern for peace, justice and the equality 
of all people. 

More specific curricular objectives are given with each 
of the degree programs. 


Aim of the Program 

Catholic Theological Union's Master of Divinity 
degree is a graduate professional program. The program 
is open both to candidates for the ordained ministry and 
to lay and religious women and men who will not be or- 
dained. It seeks to prepare candidates for pastoral leader- 
ship in a pluralistic world in a variety of ministerial 


The M . Div. program combines theological education, 
guided ministerial experience, and structures for in- 
tegrative reflection. As a first professional degree, the 
M.Div. aims to provide a generahst preparation for 
ministry, while allowing for some concentration within 
its broad framework. 

The M.Div. degree attests that its bearer has attained 
an initial readiness to engage in full-time pastoral ministry 
in the Roman Catholic Church. In this context, "initial 
readiness" means that the graduate has appropriated the 
Catholic tradition, possesses the ability to communicate 
it effectively and to engage in pastoral practice faithful 
to it, and is aware of the need for ongoing education and 
formation in ministry. 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements 
outlined above, the following are normally prerequisite 
for admission to the M.Div. program: 

— fifteen semester hours of philosophy (These will 
provide adequate exposure to the major historical 
periods of philosophical thought. Other recom- 
mended areas are philosophical anthropology, 
epistemology, and metaphysics.) 

— three semester hours in sociology 

— six semester hours in psychology (Experimental 
psychology and personality theory are recom- 

Students intending to come to Catholic Theological 
Union are advised to consider other areas important for 
ministry: e.g., the classical roots of their own cultures and 
traditions and languages such as Latin and Greek. Enter- 
ing students will also possess facility in reading, writing 
and speaking English. 

Program Options and Requirements 

The program is divided into foundational and advanced u 
areas. Requirements on the foundational level are com- 
mon for all M . Div. candidates and include courses, col- 

loquia and, normally, supervised ministry experience, i^ rxry 

totaling 36 quarter hours. _^i..„— L_»! 



Requirements on the advanced level include courses, 
supervised ministry experience with a concomitant col- 
loquium and the integrating seminar. In most instances, 
the course requirements are by area rather than by specific 

On the advanced level, candidates may choose between 
two tracks for the basic shape of their program. The first 
track is particularly suited to the needs of lay and religious 
women and men who will not be ordained. This track re- 
quires a total of 72 quarter hours beyond the 36 quarter 
hours required on the foundational level. The second track 
seeks to implement faithfully the guidelines of the 1981 
Program of Priestly Formation and is designed for 
priesthood candidates. This track requires a total of 105 
quarter hours beyond the 36 quarter hours required on 
the foundational level. The M . Div. program of individual 
students in either of these tracks can also be tailored or 
expanded to fulfill the requirements of a sponsoring agen- 
cy or religious community and the needs of their future

Language Requirement 

There is no foreign language requirement for the 
M.Div. degree as such. However, departments may 
recommend or require specific foreign language com- 
petencies for admission to some courses and concen- 

Advisement and Administration 

Students work with an academic advisor to determine 
the particular shape and requirements of their M.Div. 
program. Students are eligible to apply for M . Div. degree 
candidacy upon completion of 24 credit hours at Catholic 
Theological Union. 

Full regulations and procedures regarding the M.Div. 
degree are contained in the M . Div. Manual. The M . Div. 
program is administered by Robert Moosb rugger, O.M.I., 
Director, to whom inquiries should be addressed. 







Catholic Theological Union has participated in the 
development of a cooperative Master of Divinity degree 
program between the Ecumenical Theological Center in 
Detroit and a cluster of members of the Association of 
Chicago Theological Schools, including, in addition to 
CTU, Garrett-Evangelical Theological Seminary, McCor- 
mick Theological Seminary and Seabury-Western 
Theological Seminary. 

Courses are offered in Detroit at the Ecumenical 
Theological Center by faculty of the four cooperating 
schools and the Center. Students register for courses at 
the Center and apply through the Admissions Office of 
the cooperating school of their choice to become a Master 
of Divinity degree candidate. Approximately two-thirds 
of the curriculum can be accomplished in Detroit and the 
rest according to the policies of CTU or one of the other 
three admitting schools. Students matriculating at CTU 
through the Ecumenical Theological Center in Detroit 
must meet CTU admission requirements. Granting of the 
CTU Master of Divinity degree is contingent upon the 
student's fulfilling all relevant CTU degree requirements. 

Further information concerning this cooperative pro- 
gram can be obtained from the M. Div. Director at CTU 
who is a member of the Steering Committee administer- 
ing the program or by contacting the Ecumenical 
Theological Center, 8425 West McNichols Road, Detroit, 
Michigan 48221-2599 (313/342-4600). 



Aim of the Program 

The purpose of Catholic Theological Union's program 
for the Master of Arts in Theology is multidimensional. 
The program is designed, within the resources of Catholic 
Theological Union, the Association of Chicago 
Theological Schools and the University of Chicago, to 
provide the theological background for those who wish 
to prepare for entrance into a doctoral program in 
theology, to teach religion at a secondary or college level 
or to develop a basic competence in the area of theological 
studies though their principal specialization lies elsewhere. 

The M.A. program is marked by flexibility, allowing 
for a wide variety of individually tailored programs. When 
they apply for admission to the program, normally by the 
middle of the quarter preceding admission, the candidates 
choose the objective(s) which best meet their needs. Before 
registering for M . A . course work candidates meet with 
their M.A. advisor and the M . A . Director to work out 
the details of a program designed to help achieve the ob- 
jective(s) chosen. The M.A. advisor will help students 







evaluate their progress and decide on any modification 
which might be advisable. 

The M.A. in theology is not routinely granted en 
route to the M.Div. but may be pursued concurrently 
with the M.Div. It is open to those who wish to gain 
theological background for work other than the priestly 

Once the prerequisites have been met, the M . A . pro- 
gram will usually take two years (one year of course work 
plus the time needed for the thesis and the comprehen- 
sive examinations). It must be completed within seven 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements, 
candidates for the M . A . in theology must have completed 
18 semester hours or 27 quarter hours of university or 
seminary level theology. This latter requirement can be 
fulfilled by study in foundational areas at CTU or by an 
undergraduate major in theology or religious studies from 
an accredited college, university or seminary, provided that 
the Academic Dean, in consultation with the M . A. Direc- 
tor and appropriate faculty members, judges this to be 
equivalent. To enter advanced level courses in the Depart- 
ment of Biblical Literature and Languages the M.A. 
candidates must have taken B 300 and B 305 or equivalent. 
Other prerequisites for specific areas of specialization may 
be required by the Dean, in consultation with the M.A. 
Director and appropriate faculty members. 

Program Requirements 

The M.A. program requirements consist of courses, 
language certification, comprehensive examinations and 

Course Requirements 

Thirty-six quarter hours of course work are required. 
The candidate must maintain a "B" (3.0) average. There 
will be automatic dismissal from the program for any 
grade below a "C" or for more than two "C's." The course 
work shall be divided as follows: 

1. Eight advanced level courses in the student's area 
of specialization (e.g., scripture, systematic theo 
logy, ethics, etc.) 24 hours 


2. Two advanced level courses in each of two other 
theological disciplines 12 hours 

Up to one-third of the courses may be taken in other 
approved schools. By special arrangement with the M. A. 
board, this may be increased to one-half. 

Comprehensive Examinations 

Part of the requirements for the M.A. in theology 
is a two-part comprehensive examination in which the can- 
didates are to demonstrate their grasp of theological 
methodologies and the content of the disciphnes includ- 
ed within the scope of their program. The content and 
approach for which the student will be responsible in the 
comprehensives is determined by the student and the 
board of examiners within the general prescriptions of the 
M.A. program. A student may take the comprehensive 
examination two times; upon receipt of a petition from 
the student, the comprehensive board may allow a third 


As the final requirement for the M . A . in theology, 
candidates must demonstrate the ability to do competent 
work in their field by writing a thesis characterized by 
research and independent thought. The thesis shall be 75 
to 125 pages in length and conform to one of the manuals 
of style approved by Catholic Theological Union. 

Language Requirements 

A reading knowledge of one modern foreign language 
is required for all candidates for the M.A. degree. The 
choice will be limited ordinarily to French or German. 
In addition, those specializing in historical and doctrinal 
studies will be required normally to demonstrate a reading 
knowledge of Latin, and those specializing in scripture 
will be required to demonstrate a reading knowledge of 
Greek and Hebrew. Language competence shall be 
demonstrated as early as possible within the program. 



Final Recommendation 

The M.A. Director will determine the candidate's 
cumulative grade, based on course work (one-halO, com- 
prehensive examination (one-quarter) and thesis (one- 
quarter). An appropriate recommendation will then be 
made to the Dean and Faculty for the conferring of the 
degree of Master of Arts in Theology. 

Administration and Further Regulations 

The M.A. program is administered by Stephen 
Bevans, S.V.D., Director. Inquiries concerning the pro- 
gram should be directed to his office. Further regulations 
for the M.A. program are contained in the M.A. 






Aim of the Program 

The Master of Theological Studies (M .T. S . ) aims to pro- 
vide the students with a general theological understanding 


as a context within which they will also develop selected 
pastoral skills and competencies. 

Building upon previous ministerial experience, the 
M.T. S. provides education in the foundational areas of 
theological disciplines, a focus for developing selected 
pastoral skills and an integration of these skills within the 
framework of a general theological understanding. The 
M.T.S. is intended for persons who have had some 
ministerial experience and who wish to prepare for new 
ministries or to enhance their effectiveness in their 
current ministry. Concretely the M .T. S . is envisioned for 
sisters, brothers, deacons, lay persons or priests who wish 
an additional theological focus. 

Although the M.T.S. draws upon the same 
resources as do the M.A. and M.Div. degrees and 
shares aspects of their objectives and design, it is 
nonetheless distinct in its focus and relationship to these 

As a degree which provides not only general 
theological understanding but also specific ministerial 
skills and competencies, the M.T.S. is basically dif- 
ferent in orientation from the research M.A. degree 
and so cannot be pursued concurrently with the M.A. 

The M.T.S. represents a more limited range of 
pastoral skills for ministry than does the generalist 
M . Div. degree. For that reason, it does not quahfy the 
candidate for ordination to priesthood in the Roman 
Catholic Church. Work done in the M .T. S. program, 
however, can be applied toward the M.Div. degree, 
although the two programs cannot be pursued 

Admission Requirements 

In addition to the general admission requirements, at 
least three years of experience involving the communica- 
tion of religious values to others are required. Some 
background in theology, philosophy, psychology, 

sociology and religious studies is recommended. The ade- 

quacy of this background will be determined according M T S 
to the student's specific program. , * 


Program Requirements 

The equivalent of two full-time academic years (72 
quarter credit hours) is required for the M.T.S. degree. 
Advanced standing and transfer of credit may be granted 
for previous theological study, to be applied to the foun- 
dational areas of the M.T.S. Decisions on advanced 
standing and transfer of credit are based upon transcript 
evaluation and student interview. Candidates must main- 
tain a 3.0 cumulative grade average. The program must 
be completed within seven years. 

- Specific hour requirements fall into three areas: foun- 
dational, theological/ pastoral, and integrative areas. 

Foundational Areas: 21 hours 

The foundational areas are meant to provide some 
grounding in the major theological disciplines. They 
consist of 21 hours. Equivalency may be granted for 
this work if similar work has been done on an advanced 
level (i.e., upper level college or at another theological 
school). Work in the foundational areas must be com- 
pleted during the first year of residency. The founda- 
tional areas include: 

Introduction to the Old Testament 3 

Introduction to the New Testament 3 

History of Early Christianity 3 

Introduction to Theology 3 

Introduction to Christian Ethics 3 

Introduction to Social Ethics 3 

Sacraments: Theology and Celebration 3 

Theological! Pastoral Areas: 42 hours 

The theological/ pastoral areas provide work in 
selected areas of pastoral skills within the context of 
further theological understanding. Forty-two hours are 
required in this area, to be distributed in the following 

Systematic Theology (God, Christ, 

Church, Eucharist, Eschatology) ' 6 

Scripture 6 

- ^ ^ g Area of Concentration 18 

^ ^^ Electives ' 12 


Integrative Areas: 9 hours 

Nine hours are required in the integrative area. 
Three of these hours are to be completed in the first 
year of residency, ordinarily through the M .T. S . Col- 
loquium. These hours are meant to aid the candidates 
in reflecting upon their previous ministerial experience. 

Three hours are to be done in the second year, to 
serve as a focus for a fuller integration of pastoral 
skills, theological reflection and ministerial experience. 

The final three hours are granted for the M.T.S. 
project which is oriented to the candidate's projected 
area of pastoral ministry and is completed under the 
supervision of faculty in the appropriate area. The pro- 
ject may be done in conjunction with the second in- 
tegrating course. 

Since the M.T.S. program allows for a great deal of 
individualization, programs for M.T.S. students will be 
developed in consultation with the student and ap- 
propriate faculty in the projected area of pastoral skill. 

Language Requirement 

There are no language requirements as such for the 
M .T. S. , although language competencies may be required 
for entry into certain courses. 


The M .T. S. Program is directed and administered by 
Jeanette M. Lucinio, S.P. , Director. Further regulations 
for the M .T. S. program are found in the M .T. S. Manual. 


By a special arrangement with the University of 
Chicago, select M.Div. students from Catholic 
Theological Union may pursue a coordinated sequence 
of programs leading to the M.Div. degree at Catholic 
Theological Union and the Ph. D. degree at the Univer- 
sity of Chicago Divinity School. 


Upon receiving written approval of the Academic ^ DIV. /PH.D. 

Dean of Catholic Theological Union, the student may 
enter this sequence. While pursuing the regular course of 





study in the M.Div. program, the student prepares for 
the three Certifying Examinations and writes an essay on 
religious studies in the modern world. These requirements 
constitute the preliminary phase of doctoral study at the 
University. The Certifying Examinations cover the follow- 
ing areas: Sacred Scriptures of Judaism, Christianity and 
Islam; Western Religious Traditions to 1500; and Religion 
in the West, 1500-1900. 

Each year the Divinity School faculty selects a par- 
ticular topic for the essay in religious studies. The school 
also offers a two course sequence annually in preparation 
for this essay. Students are encouraged, but not required, 
to take this sequence. 

Application for the Ph.D. program includes com- 
pletion of at least two quarters of bi-registration at the 
University, enrolling in at least two 400-level courses at 
the University of Chicago Divinity School; successful 
completion of the three Certifying Examinations; suc- 
cessful completion of the essay and successful comple- 
tion of a French or German foreign language examina- 
tion administered by the University of Chicago. 

M.Div. students may apply for the Ph.D. program 
when they have completed the requirements above and 
have completed two years of the M.Div. program. Ap- 
plication to the Ph.D. program does not constitute ad- 
mission. Applications from this sequence will be con- 
sidered along with other applications to the Ph.D. pro- 
gram in the Divinity School. If accepted, the student 
matriculates into the Ph . D. program within one year and 
takes at least two courses in that program thereafter until 
admitted to Ph . D. candidacy. If rejected, the student may 
apply for an M.A. in the University, if the regular 
curricular and financial obligations are met. 

Students must complete the M . Div. before the Ph . D. 
can be awarded. The student may petition to have a facul- 
ty member from Catholic Theological Union serve as an 
additional examiner in the oral portion of the Qualifying 
Examinations and also serve as a member of the disser- 
tation reading committee. 

Students may apply credit received in University 
courses to the M.Div. degree in the usual arrangements 
with neighboring institutions. Successful completion of 
the Certifying Examinations and essay may be substituted 
for the Pastoral Mission Statement in the M.Div. 
Resume. Choice of elective courses and the field of doc- 
toral study may make some adjustment in M . Div. course 
distribution requirements plausible. In such cases, the stu- 
dent may petition the M.Div. Director for such ad- 
justments. These can be made by the M . Div. Director after 
consultation with the Academic Dean and appropriate 

Further details on this sequence may be obtained from 
the Dean's Office. More information on Ph . D. programs 
at the University of Chicago Divinity School may be 
found in the current issue of its Announcements. 


The World Mission Program at Catholic Theological 
Union has been developed to allow students to choose a 
mission focus in any of the various degree programs of- 
fered by the school, as well as to meet the needs of 
furloughed and returned missionaries who come to the 
school for one or more terms of continuing education. 
It also challenges all theological education at Catholic 
Theological Union with the reality of cultural and 
religious pluralism and the awareness of an existing global 

The world mission of the church has entered a new 
era. The church today must seek to be faithful to the mis- 
sion of Christ in the midst of vast social and economic 
changes among the peoples of the world who struggle to 
remain faithful to their own cultural and religious heritage. 
The mission of the church needs apostles who are per- 
sons of dialogue — who are able to live maturely between 
different cultural worlds; who seek not only to give but 
to receive, not only to lead but to assist; who call to con- 
version, but are also ready to undergo conversion; who, 
in inviting all peoples to the community of those who pro- 
fess Jesu§ as their Savior, want to respect other churches 






and other religions in their own proper development. With 
such apostles the church will become truly ecumenical and 
will become a sign and instrument of reconciliation and 
peace in Christ Jesus. 

It is with this awareness that Catholic Theological 
Union has shaped its World Mission Program. It has 
organized biblical, historical, systematic, and ethical 
courses with mission as their focus and/or content. It has 
created a specialized intensive course to help people 
prepare for cross-cultural ministry and a Mission /Ministry 
Integration Seminar to aid returned missionaries to pro- 
cess both their experience abroad and their re-entry. It 
has sought out pastoral placements most suitable for 
reflection on the church's mission. 




The World Mission Program is supervised and 
developed by the interdepartmental World Mission Forum. 
In this work forum members are aided by the Department 
of Cross-Cultural Ministries and by the Mission Advisory 
Council, representing the interests of the school's 

All degree programs provide for a concentration in 
mission. The requirements for each are as follows: 


Master of Divinity with World Mission Concentration 

The M.Div. with world mission concentration re- 
quires that one-third of the courses taken be from among 
those designated as mission courses. Mission courses are 
grouped in three categories: a) ministry courses, which 
provide experience and reflection upon that experience in 
mission; b) methodology courses, which deal with 
methods specific to the practice of mission; and c) missio- 
logy and theology courses, which provide the theoretical 
elaboration of fundamental concepts, themes and issues 
in mission. A Hst of mission courses by category is 
published annually. 

For the M.Div. with world mission concentration 
in Track I, there is to be a minimum of 36 hours 
in mission, on either the foundational or upper 
levels, to be distributed as follows: 

— 9 in ministry courses; 

— 9 in methodology courses; 

— 9 in missiology and theology courses; 

— 9 in mission electives (any category). 

For the M.Div. with world mission concentration 
in Track II, there is to be a minimum of 48 hours 
in mission, on either the foundational or upper 
levels, to be distributed as follows: 

— 12 in ministry courses;

— 12 in missiology and theology courses; 

— 12 in mission electives (any category). 

Master of Arts in Theology 

Requirements are the same as those listed for the 
M . A . degree. The eight advanced level courses taken as 
the major area are in mission courses. 

Master of Theological Studies

Catholic Theological Union carries out its World Mis- 
sion Program in cooperation with the Association of 
Chicago Theological Schools. This guarantees a broad 
theological and ecumenical environment. Together the 
schools participate in planning and sponsoring various 
workshops and meetings on current mission and inter- 
national issues and the annual World Mission Institute 
held each April. 

For further information, contact the Director of the 
World Mission Program, John Kaserow, M.M. 


The Bible is not just a collection of ancient writings 
but a major component in the contemporary formation 
of faith, a part of the living process of communication 
and interpretation of divine revelation. For this reason, 
students pursuing the Master of Divinity degree or other 
degrees are able to specialize in Bible with a view to 
developing a biblical approach in spirituality and ministry. 

Master of Divinity with Bible Concentration 





General biblical requirements are the same as those 
listed for Tracks I and II of the M.Div. degree. In addi- 
tion, for concentration in the biblical field: 

— with advisement from the department, at least 
three general electives (9 hours) are to be taken in 
the biblical field, preferably on the 500 level; 

— two other supporting courses (6 hours) from the 
general M.Div. curriculum are to be taken with 
projects in the biblical dimensions of the area of 

— participation in Spring or Fall Israel Study Pro- 
gram is normally required as an integral part of 
the concentration (12 hours, applicable to M . Div. 
bible requirements); 

— through appropriate advisement, the Ministry 
Practicum II (9 hours) will be so structured that 


the Bible can be used in an explicit way, e.g. in 
preaching or teaching ministries; 

students in Track I who do not do the Ministry 
Practicum II will take one more general elective 
(3 hours) in Bible, preferably an interdisciplinary 
course (e.g., Bible and Preaching); 

with advisement from the department, students 
are strongly urged to take one course in another 
ACTS school and to include among their biblical 
courses: one in a biblical language and one in 
Rabbinic Judaism. 

Certificate in Biblical Spirituality 

The Biblical Spirituality Program is a one-year cer- 
tificate program concentrating upon the Bible, in which 
class lectures, seminar discussion, study and prayer 
center upon the Bible as the common basis of Chris- 
tian living and Christian mission. During the fall 
quarter the Bible will be explored from the vantage 
point of the land of Israel where the participants will 
join Catholic Theological Union's Israel Study Pro- 
gram. This is followed by a re-entry seminar/ retreat in 
Chicago. The winter and spring quarters at Catholic 
Theological Union enable students not only to choose 
from extensive offerings in the Bible department but 
also to draw upon biblically-related courses in other 
departments. The program blends academic, Hturgical 
and recreational facets. With 36 credit hours (12 
courses) a Certificate in Biblical SpirituaHty is awarded. 
Students may extend their study at Catholic Theological 
Union for an additional year to earn the degree of 
Master of Theological Studies. Further information is 
available from Marianne Race, C . S . J . , Director of the 
Biblical Spirituality Program. i

The Department of Word and Worship offers a con- 
centration in preaching and pastoral liturgy within the 
M . Div. , M .T. S. and Certificate programs. This concen- 
tration seeks to combine a theological understanding of 
preaching and liturgy with skills both in exercising these 
ministries and in preparing others for them. It enables 
the student to integrate the study and practice of liturgy 
and preaching within a larger context of theology and 
pastoral care. 

Individual students work with the department 
chairperson to plan the specific content of their program 
in keeping with their background and future ministerial 
goals. In addition to Catholic Theological Union's course 
offerings, students working in Word and Worship pro- 
grams have access to a wide variety of course offerings 
in preaching and liturgy in neighboring schools. The 
Chicago area also provides many related resources and 
field sites for developing skills in Word and Worship. The 
program options and the Word and Worship requirements 
are as follows:

Master of Divinity with Pastoral Theology Concentration 

The Master of Divinity with a concentration in 
pastoral theology is designed to provide students with the 
opportunity to coordinate their studies in ways that will 
enhance preparation for the general practice of ministry 
in a variety of settings. It is rooted in a recognition that 
all the disciplines of ministry are important in develop- 
ing a coherent and integrated approach to pastoral work. 
The concentration employs an interdisciplinary design 
which enables students to pursue a chosen focus from a 
variety of perspectives. 


Individual students work with an advisor from the 
department of Spirituahty and Pastoral Ministry to plan 
the specific content of their program in keeping with their 
background and future ministerial goals. In addition to 
Catholic Theological Union's course offerings, students 
working in pastoral theology have access to a wide varie- 
ty of course offerings in pastoral care, spirituality, social 
justice ministry and pastoral theology in neighboring 
schools. The Chicago area also provides a wide range of 
opportunities for developing the knowledge and skills 
needed for an integrated approach to pastoral work. 

General requirements for the concentration in pastoral 
theology are the same as those listed for the M . Div. pro- 
gram. Concentration in pastoral theology is achieved by 
these further specifications of the regular M.Div. 

— a seminar in pastoral theology, providing the 
organizing framework for the concentration; 

— two other advanced courses from the disciplines 
of ministry, providing an opportunity for the stu- 
dent to develop an interdisciplinary perspective on 

— a focus for study around one or two themes rele- 
vant for the practice of ministry chosen by the stu- 
dent with department approval (In five of the 
courses which the student takes as a regular part 
of her or his degree work, the student will focus 
on the chosen theme or themes in the written work 
for the course. Courses from at least three different 
departments should be represented among these 
five courses. The chosen theme or themes will also 
provide the focal point for the integrating seminar 
in the final year.); 

— Ministry Practicum II taken in a parochial setting 
or one which maximizes the awareness of the im- 
portance of a coordinated approach to ministry 
(When Ministry Practicum II is not taken, an alter- 
nate integrative ministry experience, determined in 
consultation with the advisor, will be required.).

The Continuing Education Office structures a variety of 
opportunities for professional and personal development 
for those who are experienced in ministry. 

Key among the values in Catholic Theological Union's 
vision of Continuing Education is flexibility for the stu- 
dents to choose the courses most suited to their specific 
goals. The Certificate and Sabbatical Programs offer 
certain broad structures within which those goals may be 
pursued. It is also possible to select courses free of any 
programmatic structures. In all cases, academic advise- 
ment is provided to help insure that a student's particular 
goals are met.

Sheptytsky Institute in Eastern Christian Studies at Mt. Tabor 

CathoHc Theological Union offers students the oppor- 
tunity to integrate study of the theology, liturgy and 
spirituality of the Christian East with a lived experience 
of what Eastern Christians look upon as the summit of 
their spiritual tradition: monasticism. This is achieved 
through Catholic Theological Union's Sheptytsky In- 
stitute at Mt. Tabor, an annual summer intensive at Holy 
Transfiguration Monastery in California. 

Students can earn six quarter credits applicable to 
M . Div. , M . A . and M .T. S . requirements. The summer 





intensive normally consists of a monthlong stay at the 
Ukrainian Catholic Monastery of the Holy Transfigura- 
tion (Mt. Tabor) in Redwood Valley, California, where 
participants enter as fully as possible into the life of the 
monks. This includes adherence to the full schedule of 
personal prayer and fasting, as well as participation in four 
to five hours of liturgy a day. In addition, participants 
attend two three-credit courses in Eastern Theology, 
spirituality and liturgy. A field trip to San Francisco is 
included, with visits to local Eastern parishes, both Or- 
thodox and Catholic. At the conclusion of the intensive 
program, a debriefing seminar is held to facilitate re-entry 
into "the world" from the monastic experience. 

Holy Transfiguration Monastery is located two and 
one-half hours north of San Francisco in the scenic 
Coastal Range mountains of Northern California. It is 
the home of a dozen monks and is gaining a reputation 
throughout North America as a center for authentically 
Eastern spirituality. Worship is conducted in English, 
following the Byzantine-Ukrainian usage. Although Mt. 
Tabor is a men's monastery, both men and women are 
welcome in the summer intensive of the Sheptytsky 

The program is named after the Servant of God 
Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky ( + 1944), primate of the 
Ukrainian Catholic Church, pioneer of East-West 
ecumenism, and restorer of the pristine heritage of the 
Ukrainian Church. 

The Director of the Sheptytsky Institute in Eastern 
Christian Studies at Mt. Tabor is Rev. Andriy Chirovsky. 
The Sheptytsky Institute was founded at Catholic 
Theological Union in 1986; its summer program remains 
affiliated with CTU even though the Institute's head- 
quarters have moved to St. Paul University in Ottawa. Fur- 
ther details about the summer intensive at Mt. Tabor may 
be obtained from the Office of the Dean. 




Israel Study Program 

Catholic Theological Union offers two special pro- 
grams which combine scripture study and travel in the 
biblical lands. 


Each Fall there is a quarter-length program involving 
lectures on Scripture and guided exploration of biblical 
sites in Greece, Turkey, Israel and Egypt. A re-entry 

seminar/ retreat is conducted at Catholic Theological 
Union at the conclusion of the program to help par- 
ticipants relate their overseas experience to theology, 
spirituality and ministry. Students may earn up to 12 
quarter hours of credit apphcable to M . Div. , M . A . and 
M .T. S. requirements. The overseas course work concen- 
trates on the History and Archaeology of Israel and on 
a variety of Old and New Testament traditions. The 1991 
Fall study will be conducted by Leslie Hoppe, O.F.M. 
and Marianne Race, C.S.J. In 1992, Barbara Bowe, 
R . S . C . J . , and Marianne Race, C . S . J . , will conduct the 
Fall quarter study. 

Every other Spring Catholic Theological Union of- 
fers a three-week intensive in Israel, during the latter part 
of the quarter. The next program will be in the Spring 
of 1993. For the first nine weeks of the quarter students 
may take at CathoUc Theological Union two full quarter 
courses designed to be completed during that time frame; 
a third course (B475 History and Archaeology of Israel) 
will be offered as a weekend intensive (see course descrip- 
tion). This course will serve as direct preparation for the 





overseas experience. During the three weeks in Israel 
students will have guided tours of major biblical sites. Par- 
ticipants in the intensive can earn 3 quarter credits; the 
entire Spring program (the 2 courses plus the 2 intensives) 
gives 12 quarter credits applicable toward degree re- 
quirements. The Spring 1993 Israel Study will be con- 
ducted by Barbara Reid, O.P. 

On both the Fall and Spring programs students are 
accompanied by biblical faculty from Catholic 
Theological Union; expert resource people overseas also 

The Director of the Israel Study Program is Marianne 
Race, C.S.J. Further details can be obtained from her

''God's presence is 
not confined to a 
wliisper at tlie moutli 
of tlie cave, nor the 
mysterious guiding 
pillar of cloud in the 
wilderness plains, 
nor a voice from a 
mountaintop storm. 
The biblical God is 
also in the city and 
the city is, therefore, 
a sacred place."
